Thread: Juvenile Black-Crowned Night Heron

  1. #1

    Juvenile Black-Crowned Night Heron

    On a windy day in FL, I got lucky with this guy coming in to land on a perch. The wind kept him aloft for a bit, and I couldn't have asked for a better pose. Had to shoot at high ISO as it was quite cloudy and close to sunset. Not bad for ISO 6400!

    Shooting info:
    Nikon D800 | 500 f/4 VRII + 1.4x
    1/2000" | f/7.1 | ISO 6400

    Thems the same bird! You guys must have been so into the shot that you didn't notice the other guy across the pond. Lol very cool shots both of you.
    It still looks good at high ISO miguel.

    Thanks! I do selective noise reduction on the background with images like this. I found this good article years ago and have been using this technique on high-iso images:

    for some reason I can't open that link, but I do some selective reduction at times, I go through phases where I may or may not use any NR.
